Review excerpt: "'Bookish and The Beast' isn’t a WOW book, but it’s a comforting, often funny YA read for romance fans who are either geeks or geek-sympathetic and who enjoy beauty and the beast variations. This is the third book in the “Once Upon a Con” series and while it works as a stand-alone, characters from the rest of the series make appearances. While the plot is nonsensical and the main characters are bland, the supporting characters are a blast.

...'Bookish and the Beast' is a YA, and when it works at all, it works because it’s about teens. They are trapped in a moment of time where they have to outgrow their teen lives but they can’t yet move into their adult lives, and that lends real tension to the story. They are also experiencing love for the first time, which adds excitement and confusion and spark."

A Must-Read Young Adult pick 2020. An adorable and absolutely nerdy rom-com retelling of the "Beauty and the Beast" story.
